Indivisibility: A Prescription for November 7th, 2012

Next Tuesday’s presidential contest can perhaps be described as the most important election that our collective generations may ever face. As the national debt continues on its daily growth rate of roughly $4 billion, 23 million Americans join half of recent college graduates in struggling to find adequate employment, Medicare and Social Security rapidly inch closer to their insolvency, and the foreign landscape continues to manifest itself as one in the midst of a minatory process of collapse, dreadful statistics have indicated the sobering significance of November 6th, 2012 to the American people. As such, the tremendous stakes of...

Our Winning Argument, Part II: Five Debate Questions for President Obama

“And still we continue to wait and hope that our president will finally stop being a bystander in the Oval Office.” -Governor Chris Christie In this column’s prequel, the consistent rhetoric of divisiveness, blame, and distraction put forth by both the Obama administration and campaign was explained as the only narration available to describe economic policies that have irrefutably failed. Put simply, the activity of President Obama and his Democratic Congress (which prominently features a failed stimulus package, a massive healthcare overhaul, and an imprudent distribution of blank taxpayer checks masqueraded as ‘bailouts’) ultimately claims responsibility for the removal of...

Our Winning Argument, Part 1: Five Debate Questions for President Obama

I join Governor Christie in holding the belief that because our principles are right, the success of our ideological...

Redress of Grievances: Lessons to be Learned from September 11th, 2012

 Just two weeks ago, September 11th once again revealed to the world the barbarous measures that freedom’s adversaries employ without trepidation. Out of utmost respect for Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods (and each of their grieving families), we must always recognize and remain cognizant of our sacred responsibility to refrain from playing political football following tragedy. To earn cheap political points at the expense of an American death is both vile and thankfully rejected by the American people. Likewise, we must not hide from our duty to analyze critical mistakes made by those who...

How Big Government is Draining America’s Battery

After a disappointing and dysfunctional set of years, I was finally presented with the opportunity of choice. Decision day had arrived. I had performed extensive research on the two main candidates, exhaustively considering pundit commentary and debate performances in order to arrive at an informed conclusion. While one side put forth nothing more than similar qualities to that of the status quo, I felt passionately that an exciting adjustment was necessary. Ultimately, with a mindset of hope, I chose the latter prospect of jaunty change, yielding features of astounding opportunity. Of course, I am referencing my choice to purchase...
